This lady is looking to increase her skills so that she can manage her daughter who has suffered severe trauma and therefore can be aggressive and violent at times. It's a very difficult time for this lady due to a bereavement of her partner, the child's father. They are moving to a new part of country and have very little income. The training pass will be help her to gain knowledge and strategies to support her daughter.
This lady has a disabled child. They have fled domestic violence and now are being rehomed into a safe house. Another charity is helping with supplying household items as they have nothing. Carpets are vital for safety for her child to play on as well as keeping the rooms warm and cosy. She wants to help other sufferers of domestic abuse and will start training soon. She is a lovely lady who deserves a fresh and safe start. Please can you help her and her child stay safe in their new home?
This young lady is struggling at the moment with lack of money and is wanting to make a fresh start since writing her debts off through her local Citizens Advice office. She is looking to get cleaning products and rugs for her new home, and equipment like pans for her kitchen and would love the £80 needed for this. She is a mother to a small child and this money will help her make a fresh new start. Thank you.
We are supporting a single mum and her two young boys who have experienced a lot of trauma. Mum struggles to cope with her sons' behaviours and is undergoing a therapeutic parenting course; the therapist has suggested that the boys would really benefit from a weighted blanket as well as a play tent with a sensory kit. These items would be such a huge help to this family, but they cannot afford them. Could you help us to support this family who have been through so much?
C suffers from agoraphobia, anxiety and depression. She hardly leaves her home. She relies on her adult son to help her with shopping, etc. C claims Employment and Support Allowance and has put in a claim for Personal Independence Payment but has not yet heard anything. Her fridge/freezer has totally broken which meant that she had to throw out all her frozen food. She is now living on canned and dried food. This is bad for her budget and for her diet. She is quite a vulnerable lady.
A couple on low income have had to take an elderly parent into their home who has severe dementia. Her partner is not working and she is the main carer. If they did not look after her she would have been forced to go into a home, which the couple did not want. Unfortunately the lady has a number of physical needs so they need new bedding and suitable equipment for the bathroom.
Mr E has been homeless for a long time. Unfortunately he suffers with a disability of the spine and while he was homeless this was made worse due to rough sleeping. Mr E has now been offered a property he is asking for help to source a bed that will be suitable to sleep on with his disability. This will allow him to finally sleep comfortably and in a manner that isn't detrimental to his health any further. Can you please help?
D took his bike to a pawn shop 10 months ago on an extended ticket. He has extended it four times since. Now lockdown has lifted the pawnbroker has pulled it out and put it up for sale for £138.90. This bike was put together for D and paid for by his sister. It is a one-off. D needs it for his mobility. He has had pneumonia 5 times and has a collapsed left lung with scar tissue. He is also waiting for 2 knee operations. He can walk but gets painful like pins and needles. He is on Universal Credit and is a Christians Against Poverty client.
L is a single mum who suffers from PTSD and struggles with anxiety when leaving her home. She currently has a small fridge with freezer box but consequently has to shop every 2-3 days as she is unable to store more. The fridge is also not maintaining the correct temperature. It would make a massive difference to have a bigger fridge/freezer. £150 should enable L to buy a reconditioned one.
This single man is homeless due to his mental ill health issues. He only has a thin, worn out sleeping bag and has little money and few possessions. He now desperately wants to turn his life around and is engaging with agencies to enable this to happen and has begun to address his issues. He needs a thick sleeping bag as it is frosty and cold at night plus a tent so he can stay dry and a bit warmer. He really is trying to make a fresh start but realises it may take time. Please can you give him hope?
C is a young man with learning difficulties. He has lived with his mum who has cared for him and has supported him to the point of independence. He has recently moved into his first property but, due to family debts from a previous relationship, C's mum can't afford to buy a fridge freezer for his new property. C has almost everything else he needs just no way to safely store his food. Please help to provide a fridge freezer for someone in need.
S is a single mother living in rented accommodation, currently claiming Employment & Support Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Child Tax Credits and Child Benefit. S suffers from multiple physical health problems especially with her back. She would like help with an Inversion table to decompress her spine which would do wonders for her pain management and mobility. This has been recommended by her GP but she is unable to afford this on her own and needs some help. Thank You.
D and his brother have recently moved house following the death of their father whom they lived with, the circumstances around their father's death has caused D to have ongoing anxiety. D has some health issues which are limiting his mobility at present. They moved flat at short notice and brought little with them. They had been sleeping on blow up beds for a couple of weeks, we have supplied most of the furniture they require. They would be very grateful for a cooker so they can cook again.
This gentleman, A, has survived being on the streets despite having no arms. He is now in temporary accommodation and is in desperate need of assistance. He needs a microwave and toaster so his carer can prepare simple meals for him (and feed him). He needs clothing too including shoes. Any assistance you can give will have a huge effect on him. Thank you.
S has escaped from living on the streets to living a sober, drug free life. Now in temporary accommodation, she does not have cooking facilities. We have supplied her with the basics (all second hand) but we don’t have the other items she desperately needs in our stocks. Any assistance for this lovely lady will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
N has depression, arthritis in his neck and severe headaches. He is on Universal Credit, applying for Personal Independence Payment and struggling financially due to high energy bills which we are helping with. He has been struggling since the death of his wife 8 years ago, she died in their bed and he had been sleeping on the floor since. We have been able to get a new bed for N but this has no headboard or bedding. Having a bed with a headboard and bedding will help with N's physical health and also his mental wellbeing after sleeping on the floor for so long.
